    Yeah, I know it was asked before, but every time i try to use dsimenu++ when i press "Start DSiMenu++" i press the screen in the nds boot screen and the screen goes black. I am pretty sure i installed it correctly and I already tried the "DSi / DS functionality is broken after completing the guide" but it still doesn't work. I have a New Nintendo 3DS XL on firmware 11.8 with Luma.
    Does anybody have a solution?

    1. Make sure you're using SysNAND and not EmuNAND. DSiWare that includes DSiMenu++ does not work on EmuNAND.
    • Hold (Select) when turning on the 3DS to get to Luma3DS configuration and have this option not marked with an x: ( ) Autoboot EmuNAND

    2. Update to the latest DSiMenu++. Current version is v6.2.1 found here.
    • Replace the _nds folder on the root of the SD card.
    • Replace the BOOT.NDS on the root of the SD card.
    • Reinstall DSiMenuPlusPlus.cia
    • Reinstall DSiMenuPlusPlus - Game booter.cia

    3. Update to the lastest DSiMenu++ Launcher. Current version is v2.0.2 found here.
    • Replace the DSiMenuPlusPlus Launcher.3dsx found in the 3ds folder.
    • Reinstall DSiMenuPlusPlus Launcher.cia
